It really pays to keep a sketchbook and fill it up with ideas as often as you could. Just recently, I wanted to make a vector illustration and had no idea what to illustrate. So here comes my sketchbook to the rescue.
Most of the time, I prefer to sketch my ideas first before doing the vector works in Illustrator. Nothing beats pencil(or any sketching medium you prefer) and paper in fully and freely rendering your ideas. Here’s a peek at my work process. I would love to show you my detailed illustration process in a future post.
